South American - An ancestral hero of the Anti. Indians of Bolivia. Father of Tiri. After the destruction of mankind by fire, Titi, the progenitor of the tribe, split open a tree and a beautiful maiden emerged from the tree and Ule married her. Together they became the ancestors of the Anti. Another story says that he was torn to pieces by a jaguar but his wife reassembled the parts she could find and restored him to life. Ule realised that part of his face was missing and went off, leaving his wife and young son. His wife was later killed by jaguars but her son, Tiri, avenged her death when he grew up. In some references, called Ule.
